Could the Yankees Break the Home Run Record?

The New York Yankees put together one of the best hitting trios in the history of the MLB this offseason. Aaron Judge was close to breaking the single-season home run record just a season ago and Giancarlo Stanton is one of the other top home-run hitters of the past decade when healthy. Additionally, the Yankees landed the top hitter on the free-agent market, Juan Soto. This trio has a chance to do something extremely special in the 2024 MLB season and possibly break the MLB home run record.

To set the record for the most home runs in a season the Yankees will need a team effort, not just these three players. Right now this is not a record that the team is likely thinking of chasing but in this era the home-run record has a chance to be beaten every year. Last season the record of 307 total home runs was tied by the Atlanta Braves. The previous record was set in 2019 by the Minnesota Twins.

2019 was a massive home-run season. The Twins set the record that year but the Yankees hit 306, just one under the record. For the Yankees, the odd thing about that season was that they only had Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton for a combined 120 games that year. This upcoming season the Yankees should have a healthy Judge, Stanton, and Soto.

The new Yankees’ trio has had some massive home run seasons individually. Judge hit 62 home runs in the 2022 season, Stanton has hit 59, and Soto hit 35 home runs while playing in one of the least-friendly-home-run parks in the MLB last year.

This trio may be dynamic but the rest of the Yankees’ roster has some other more than adequate home-run hitters as well. Gleyber Torres is a player who hit 38 homers before while Anthony Rizzo has five seasons with 31 or more home runs, not to mention Anthony Volpe who could turn into a home-run hitter himself.

This Yankees team has a lot of firepower and could easily break the single-season-home-run record in 2024. Hopes should be high in New York for the upcoming MLB season. We will see what happens but if this team is healthy they should also be one of the World Series favorites as the season approaches.
